Day 2 of 100 Days’ Second Pass. Latte to start day. Going down to Bel Marin today, later. Need to reserve car. Will do in a minute. More intensity in connectedness, like yesterday and all days before. Tend to list I wrote up toward end of yesterday’s meeting, with this new project. On the Road, before Day 100. Lecturing and speaking wherever I can…. No more promissory writing like this. Where I am and what I’m doing—Sonc office arranging leads on desk, looking for new names to put in Collective Conversation. Not saying “funnel”. Not ‘cause I don’t like the word, I merely see my phrasing as more applicable and appropriate.
This new project, as well fixating on productivity itself. How I do what I do when I do. No class today, so that’s lost production. Or is it. Only if I allow. 8:17 now, and a whole day to advance in the project. Not asking for permission, not waiting for any allowance or grant. Just going. What we should all do. I slow my typing speed, where I am at this desk, seeing the latte out of eye’s corner and thinking I’ll be sad when I finish it. Why. Some hesitation and pause, lull with it for me, like it’s a lover or lifeline or both right now.
The latte helps me not think a thing, just to write my hour and current steps and breaths in this office. Inputting names into the ColleCon, what I’m now calling the Collective Conversation not to be cute or witty or fashionable in combining names as they do with celebrities when they date, but to make it more my own. And I’m finding that AE life, or any position here at Sonic really, is about wholly owning your own onus.
Distracted by one of my favorite partners here, coming over to see if I saw the batteries he left on my desk for my mouse, the mouse he gifted me. I thanked him and he as always responds that he has his moments, I respond that he has many and I appreciate them all. This office and the atmosphere, this is all I ought talk about with prospects, so why do I still overthink prospecting, talking to business owners and decision makers. No logical warrant, all in my head.
Mouse working now, the one K gave me, and I’m back at the desk typing. First thing after this, put names in ColleCon. May even call it CC, to have it be easier and more proprietary. A business to look up, there’s another, there’s almost too much and not in a negative note and know. There’s more story ahead of me than I estimated. AE life is all about Onus, seeing what you see then acquiring through production and narration, self-study.
8:43, relaxing, enjoying what’s left of the latte. More than I thought. Why did I see the cup so depleted? Obvious insight into psychology, psychology I should shift of course. Was over in other building to get a battery and now I notice I should have got a key, for car I’m going to use today for drive to BMK. Should probably start prepping for that meeting, another obvious trot. So…. Shifting motion and focus, frame and form.
Seeing that all of us are AEs. All, each one of us, our own executive, and each aim, sight, possibility is an already-tenable account. Thinking is the barrier, just as much as it might be necessary for projects and for colossal movement toward your There. Create, don’t excessively deliberate. Don’t stall yourself in circular consideration and evaluation. As with prospects, enjoy the moment, the creation and conversation.
